    More tips from the trenches on how to help your lawyer win for you

    In Force Science News #252 (3/26/14) we offered six tips from police attorney and Force Science graduate Heather White on how officers can help the lawyers defending them win in court in use-of-force litigation.

    We asked our readers for additional suggestions--and we got 'em.

    Here's a representative sampling of the voices of experience we heard from. In some cases, their emails have been edited for brevity and clarity and to avoid duplication.

    Beware sharing details with concerned inquirers

Every single day across North America and abroad, incidents and accidents occur in the realm of Reality Based Training. Details of the majority of these incidents never see the light of day for fear of embarrassment or punishment. As a result, there is a grave misperception that such incidents are isolated occurrences. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you have witnessed or know of an incident where there was either the potential for injury or injury actually occurred, please send in the details of this incident for posting in this forum. Please also send in what you believe to be the cause of the incident and how it could have been prevented. All posts to this forum will be moderated prior to posting to ensure all identifiying personal and agency information has been scrubbed so that no consequences will result from its publication. The goal of this forum is to demonstrate the alarming number of incidents where tragedy either occured or could have occurred. The information you provide might just sa

Tara Marie Drummond was killed during her recruit training class in Kennesaw, Georgia on September 13, 2006. Her instructor was attempting to involve the students in an exercise that would ultimately begin to prepare the new officers for the realities of pointing a firearm at another human being. Unfortunately, due to ineffective safety protocols, live weapons and conventional ammunition were present in a classroom setting that prohibited both. The instructor reached into a box of cartridges that he thought to be filled with inert training cartridges and inadvertantly loaded a chambered a conventional round. When he demonstrated the drill against Tara, he shot her in the chest. She died shortly thereafter. This discussion forum will discuss and track the situation as it makes its way through the torturous legal system. Tara's family is seeking an overhaul of the system that led to this tragedy and the RBTA is providing information and support in an effort to assist in the development of training standards wit

Winning dangerous encounters isn't simply about winning the initial battle, although without that victory the other battles are moot. Much of the training that exists, and toward which the majority of the training resources are directed, focus on physical survival. There are, however, six other equally vital battles that must be won. In the 1940's Abraham Maslow, one of the founders of humanistic psychology, posited that human beings employ a hierarchy when it comes to fulfilling their needs. The precondition for fulfilling higher-order needs is that lower-order, more basic needs must be met first. The Seven Survivals parallels Maslow's Heirarchy in content, but when it comes to recovering from the effects of use of force encounters, many of these other battles need to be won before any physical battle. Some must be won following the physical encounter. In that regard, the Seven Survivals are more like a continuum than a heirarchy. To ignore these needs is akin to creating what Lt. Col.
